Penn State Athletics is continuing to caution fans after hundreds of counterfeit tickets were confiscated before and during the Sept. 29 Nittany Lion football game against Ohio State at Beaver Stadium.

The university said in a release on Monday that more that ticketing staff and police confiscated more than 300 bogus ducats from fans who thought they had purchased official tickets for the White Out game. Those fans were denied entry to the stadium.

Prior to the game, the university warned fans and notified law enforcement of counterfeit tickets being sold from non-authorized sources in the secondary market.

"Nittany Lion football fans are being reminded by Penn State Athletics to be cautious of counterfeit tickets, including the print-at-home format and illegally reproduced single game tickets purchased from non-authorized sources, for all remaining home games this season, starting with the Homecoming clash vs. Michigan State, which will kick at 3:30 p.m.," the news release said.

The Penn State Athletic Ticket Office and Ticketmaster are the only authorized ticket outlets for Nittany Lion home athletic events. The school said fans purchasing tickets from unauthorized sources -- such as StubHub, Vivid Seats, Craigslist, eBay and ticket brokers -- assume the risk that the tickets are counterfeit or the barcodes have been invalidated.
